    Post links here. It doesn’t even have to be your own story. If you’ve found a story you love there, then please share that as well.

    I uploaded my first piece recently. And since this a new thread, is there a way to create a sticky note or thread @Paul Bellow that summarizes the discussion we had on the thread that started this?

    I also think this is a good place to trade reviews and pair up as mutual 'Development Readers' - a type of beta reader that helps with plot and story structure - for those that are interested. I know I am interested in what authors with more experience (in writing and on RRL) have to say on my writing.

    I can do pretty thorough critiques, so if anyone's interested in pairing up to trade notes and critiques on serial LitRPG, comment on my profile. Err, I think that's how it works around here right? Or you can PM me on RRL.

    I'll move that thread over to this new forum.

    You can comment on a thread or start a "Conversation" with other members. Up to you.

    Also check out the @Beta Reader group. There's a Beta Reader thread too.

    HTH!

    Combination of things. Big one is I finished the first part of the story (sort of my characters origin story). Then I hit a big and now what?... I'm not done with it. From here out I'm telling a different story. Oh and seriously swamped with other life stuff. I think posting on RR is worth the effort. It took me a while before I was able to start on RR. To some degree I'm starting again on RR (considering taking the first part, filling and editing and publishing that as a separate novella. I'm still mushing around the pieces of who, what, where, why... And I'm sorely missing a villain or challenge for my MC to tackle. I'll take as long as I need, and then I'll start writing.

    I don't know if this idea is a good idea or not. But @Ian Mitchell have you considered creating a fictional universe instead? Or doing character cross-overs from your other writing? While I've never heard of such a thing in practice, I'd love to have an author's permission to bring one of their characters, especially the MC or Villain into my world.

    I have a little experiment I'm working on that I've considered turning into a Monthly series so as not to distract from the main one, where characters are taken from simulations of Earth (and fantastical variations of it) and placed in a game world to compete in various games.

    It's based off of the idea that our reality (this one, the 'real one') could eventually reach a point where technology is so advanced each person can run a simulation of human history in their bedroom computer. And that's where my main characters are drawn, from these home-simulations that regular people use as a sandbox to cook up scenarios for their amusement.
